Boat Museum and Bluebells
Once in Ellesmere port we followed through a housing estate to cross a canal bridge and then explore the outskirts of Stanlow, before arriving at the Boat Museum.
We were joined by a couple of quite oily Bicycle Belles (our sister Wirral women on wheels group) out to recky their route for next week. Oily because Sylvia had had an arguement with her chain and almost lost but between her and Janet (and I do not doubt some stern words!) they reunited the chain with the chain wheel and were able to contine! And they have had a bike maintenance course!
Saying our farewells, we followed the canal all the way to the back of Chester Hospital, (suprised a brood of 7 ducklings - sooo cute!) and then followed the streets back to the cafe. We lost a few on the way - planned of course as people neared their home, or left to get back for work.
Total of 17 miles
I have lived in Chester all my life, and cycled here for over 25 years. It goes someway to explaining how I know my way locally without referring to a map all the time, a fact which amazes my ladies. There is a wealth of accessible lanes, tracks and routes within 10 miles of Chester, easily reached in a mornings ride. Not to mention more cafe's than you can shake a bicycle pump at! That is what the fabulous ladies is all about! Oh, and cake!
